Antique Jewelry Stars In Costume Drama

Antique splendor

We had a visit from one of our favorite clients, Chris, his wife Jaybee, and friends, on their way to a special event celebrating the Riverside Dickens Festival. We were pleased to see Jaybee wearing the exquisite antique necklace Chris recently acquired from Mardon. This necklace is one of the finest examples of Edwardian jewelry it’s been our pleasure to offer.

As you can see, Chris and Jaybee were dressed in period costume, painstakingly created by Jaybee’s sister Judy. The event was a fundraiser for Riverside’s annual Dickens Festival held every February. Noted actor, director and producer Gerald Dickens, the great great grandson of famous author Charles Dickens, was the featured attraction, but we’ll bet he was upstaged by Jaybee in her gorgeous necklace and beautiful costume.

While the necklace graced our shop, I was particularly impressed by the design and workmanship of this wonderful platinum and diamond necklace. Read more in my blog article explaining the handcraft techniques and skills involved in creating this work of art  at this url,

At Mardon, we work with all types of fine jewelry. Whether it’s making custom items, designing original one-of-a-kind pieces, or discovering beautiful antique and vintage jewels, you’ll find us busy all hours of our day. We especially love the history of jewelry making. Stop by the shop to see and learn more about fine jewelry, from new to antique. Our regular hours are Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm. Starting December 15, we’ll be open everyday til Christmas.
